Samsung DV300F

 

Samsung's inexpensive DV300F gives you a neat front LCD for self portraits, a sharp lens, and an excellent Wi-Fi experience. But this compact camera is downright sluggish.

Inexpensive. Sharp lens. Front-facing LCD for self portraits. Excellent Wi-Fi integration. Many in-camera effects.

Waxy images at middling ISO settings. Sluggish performance. Short zoom range. HD video capture limited to 720p. No HDMI output.

Performance and Conclusions The DV300F is not a camera that is built with speed in mind. It takes a full 2.1 seconds to start and shoot, makes you wait 1.5 seconds between shots, and records a lengthy 0.5-second shutter lag. The similarly sized and...

Samsung DualView cameras put the photographer in the picture

 

Seems one LCD display per camera is not enough for Samsung, which has just unveiled two compact digital cameras that feature dual LCD screens - one on the back and one on the front. The extra displays found on the TL225 and TL220 are designed to make...

Aside from the 1.5-inch front LCD found on the TL225 and TL220 DualView cameras, both feature a 12.2-megapixel CCD and 27mm wide-angle Schneider KREUZNACH lens with 4.6x optical zoom. The TL225 boasts a 3.5-inch wide 1,520,000-pixel resolution...

We've seen Samsung compact cameras packing Wi-Fi skills before – like the capable WB150F. With the 16.1MP DV300F, you can now instantly back-up and share your shots without rummaging around for too many extra pennies over the price of your average...

Samsung DV300F

 

Self-portrait screen is handy if you're into that sort of thing

Smartphones are great for self-portraits ; Image quality could be better

Pleasant aesthetics, a low price and the front-mounted LCD screen are the main drawcards for the Samsung DV300F. We'd recommend spending a tad extra to get a whole lot more elsewhere, and relying on your smartphone for self-portraits.
